One Homemade Cake made by a Ukrainian

Grandmother
Value: $100

Alla Stetsenko is the mother-in-law of Iryna Kulyk and the grandmother to Kira Stetsenko and
Myroslava Stetsenko, the family we are supporting in Sonoma County for two years. Sonoma
County is now home to one of the best dessert makers to come out of Ukraine! Her cakes are
legendary, as well as her cookies, eclairs, and breads. John Namkung, sponsor of the
Kulyk/Stetsenko family says, “Her cakes are, without any doubt, the best I have ever tasted. It’s not
a coincidence that I have gained ten pounds since August 11, 2022 when Alla arrived in Sonoma
County.” Dianne Namkung, a chocolate connoisseur, says,”Alla made a chocolate cake for my

birthday that was beyond incredible!”

Alla works at Goguette Breads in Santa Rosa and at Patisserie Angelica in Sebastopol where she
is doing what she loves best–making delicious desserts and other baked goods!
The winner of this auction item will be the recipient of a cake for a special occasion. You will

specifiy the size and type of cake, and it will be delivered to you.

Thanks To
Alla Stetsenko

Item #3

Joan Baez Art and Literature

Value: $1,600

Joan Baez has donated two signed items to support Ukrainian families who fled the war
and are now living in Sonoma County. 1. Joan Baez painted this portrait of President
Volodymyr of Ukraine in 2022. Two hundred and fifty archival pigment prints of this portrait
have sold out, and all the proceeds ($125,000) went to International Medical Corps. This
print, which is being auctioned, is a one-of-a-kind item donated and signed by Joan Baez,
specifically to raise funds for Ukrainian families in Sonoma County. The print is larger (22 x
33 in) than the original print (23 x 16 3/8 in) and is mounted on canvas, which gives the
appearance of an oil painting. 2. This book was signed and donated by Joan Baez,
specially to raise funds for Ukrainian families in Sonoma County. Like a long, funny letter
from an old friend, an album of drawings by the legendary singer and activist for social
justice, Joan Baez. Since retiring from active performing, Baez has focused her formidable
talents on painting and drawing. This collection of drawings shows another side of Baez:
lovingly loose and charming sketches on reoccurring themes such as politics,
relationships, women, animals, and family. Each section, organized thematically, includes
an introductory piece by the artist. Baez approaches her line drawings as exercises in
freedom: she begins drawing upside down—often using her non-dominant hand—without

any preconceived notion of where the lines might lead her.

Thanks To
Joan Baez
